Greetings from the trail,
After nearly killing myself getting out of my ordeal on Tuesday, I got to my grandparents' place and took a much-needed day off. It was nice to relax - especially when my legs were like jelly.
Today I started out bright and early in Hope. My grandpa drove me out to pick up the trail where I walked through town. It was annoying to give up on two days' progress, but at least I didn't feel like I was repeating work.
After walking out of town, I crossed the might Fraser River. This is one thing I was glad to do. The official TCT crosses it on a ferry. That hardly qualifies as walking.
The rest of the day was a long, but easy walk along highway 7 to the town of Agassiz. I'm staying here with some relatives - Jim and Twylla and their son Bob. They have been very hospitable and welcoming. I'm certainly glad to be done with camping.
See you on the trail,
